Program

This new production of Norma for The Royal Opera is distinguished by a superlative cast of internationally renowned singers. Bellini's classic bel canto opera is full of wonderful melodies and opportunities for star singing. But it is especially known for Norma's stunning showpiece aria, 'Casta diva'.

Àlex Ollé of innovative Catalan theatre group La Fura dels Baus directs, bringing a modern edge to this timeless tale of love, rivalry and betrayal, set against a backdrop of war driven by the extremes of a fanatically religious society. This striking new production opens the 2016/17 Season.

Director: Àlex Ollé
Writer: Vincenzo Bellini and Felice Romani
Cast: Antonio Pappano, Sonya Yoncheva, Joseph Calleja, Sonia Ganassi, Brindley Sherratt, David Junghoon Kim, Vlada Borovko, Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
